We all have it; that terribly incessant inward groan. Must. Have. Chocolate.
It's summer. It's hot. You don't want an ENTIRE cake, just a bite. A nibble really. Microwave cake in a mug to the rescue. Ready in five minutes and guaranteed to meet that chocolate need.
My mother sent me this recipe. I have no idea of its origin. If you do, then do tell. Thanks.
Microwave Chocolate Cake in a Mug
In a large, microwave safe mug, mix
4 Tablespoons flour
4 Tablespoons sugar
2 Tablespoons cocoa
Mix well again
3 Tablespoons milk
3 Tablespoons oil
3 Tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
and a splash of vanilla
Mix well and place in microwave. Cook on 1000 watts for 3 minutes. It will rise up in your mug. It's all good, no worries.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes (yeah, right!) It will slide right out of the mug and you can start placing it in your face. hothothothotswallow.
You can even share it. Again, yeah, right!
Made one this morning. Kids loved the idea. I love the taste. Let me know if you try it or have variations.
